  • Unfortunately for some women surgery is the only option, but I would only do it if you are done having children. Otherwise you might need the procedure more than once. But talk to your doctor and ask for suggestions!

  • I have had two C-sections and two very large babies . . . my husband is super-tall, and I am a bit challenged in the vertical direction (5'2") . . . sooooo, my stomach was HUGE when I was pregnant, holding his super-size babies. That, along with the C-sections, and yes, I have that terrible cushy-gushy, overextended, stretch-marked flap of extra skin in front that makes it sooooooo hard to fit in pants. I wouldn't want to do surgery right now because my kids are little, and I can't see putting myslef at risk with an elective. But, if anyone has a miracle exercise, I am totally on that!!! Someone give me a miracle.

  • It depends on your age, after your 30's your skin looses elasticity, but before then it usually goes back to normal.
